May offers an array of heritages and legacies to celebrate, including that of the Jewish people, as May is Jewish American Heritage Month! It was created to specifically recognize Jews in America and their contributions to the United States.
It's a timely opportunity to celebrate the inspiration, support, and innovation provided by those of Jewish heritage to United States American history, culture, literature and the arts, science, government, and more.
In 2020, Philadelphia’s National Museum of American Jewish History worked to further evolve Jewish American Heritage Month in order to empower communities across the country to celebrate the inspiring history of Jewish people in America. It is also helping to educate diverse public audiences about Jewish culture and spark crucial conversations about the American Jewish present and future.
